DREAM Banner

Hello Friends!

My DT project for Bob N Betty this time is a "DREAM" banner which originated in a quote I once read  'IMAGINATION is the soil that brings DREAMS to life'. When I received the DT kit I was awestruck with these Made in India papers, absolutely enticing! 

For making this banner I used die cut pennants for the base. I glued together 4 card stock die cuts for each pennant to make the base sturdy. 

I selected papers from the Floral Logs collection & trimmed them to size to layer over the die cuts. These designs are have so much of layering & textures in the patterns, so I wanted minimal embellishments!

I colored the Prima DREAM letter resins with black soot distress ink with a dash of gold acrylic paint. To coordinate the pennants & also the Tim Holtz word bands, colored them similarly.

Once I had the letters D R E A M placed on the pennants, I embellished them & look at the magic created using these papers! Fantabulous!
The metal word bands have some inspiring words which were just perfect to for the theme I had in mind - Imagination & dream! 
I wanted these to standout clearly on the banner, so added these to square die cuts to the base of the banner.
The glass beads & tassels were just perfect to complete the banner.

The Ornate Annie collection has some sheets with tags, envelopes, frames, etc which can be easily fussy cut & I thought it would be perfect to add some interest & provide a good contrast  for the resin letters.
